led astray

your pets and my lap

That sounds wrong. But I need to talk about the child-like glee that erupts when an animal seeks to cuddle with me. It feels to me like I've made an accomplishment as a person if an animal knows I'm safe. That's part of why Tink gives me a specially sweet glee because she's so naturally skittish. When I was young and awkward and nerdy (before it became cool) I got more and better attention from animals than my peers, so I tend to seek their approval first. I had one friend who had many cats who all generally either liked or ignored me, until one day one of them turned on me. I have no concept of what I did to piss this cat off, but it never forgave me. It used to really like me, then one day I was SATAN INCARNATE and it's hissing at me and trying to bite me and swiping at me, and that's if it merely walked into a room where i was sitting. That was really disturbing and made me sad. But tonight was good. Tonight the littler pup sat with me and quietly chewed his toy. It made me happy.
